URGE FOR GOING (Joni Mitchell) George Hamilton IV - 1967 Tom Rush - 1968 Jody Miller - 1968 The Johnstons - 1968 Wally Whyton - 1968 Claire Hamill - 1971 Tony Rice - 1988 Mary Black - 1991 Courage Of Lassie - 1994 Luka Bloom - 2000 Lisa Theriot - 2001 Ken Whiteley - 2010 Also recorded by: Joni Mitchell; Crosby, Stills & Nash; Dave Van Ronk; Julie Adams; Darrell Scott; Kathryn Smith. I awoke today and found the frost perched on the town It hovered in a frozen sky and gobbled summer down When the sun turns traitor cold And all the trees are shivering in a naked row I get the urge for goin', but I never seem to go I met a girl in summertime, summer-coloured skin Not another boy in town my darlin's heart could win When the leaves fell tremblin' down Bully winds did push their faces in the snow She got the urge for goin' and I had to let her go She got the urge for goin' when The meadow grass was turnin' brown Summertime was fallin' down And winter closin' in Now the warriors of winter give a cold triumphant shout And all that stays is dyin', all that lives is gettin' out See the geese in chevron flight A-flappin' and a-racin' on before the snow They got the urge for going, they've got the wings to go I'd like to call back summertime And have her stay for just another month or so But she's got the urge for goin' So I guess she'll have to go And I get the urge for going when The meadow grass is turnin' brown Summertime is fallin' down And winter's closin' in (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - September 2011)
